be opposed to this? the nra is opposed to this. the nra is wildly opposed to this. in tucson top, anniversary of the massacre there, the nra has come outraging against the tucson gun buy-back program. they're trying to stop it. an nra board member is threatening that the nra will sue to stop tucson from destroying the guns that they handed over. the guns, regardless what their owners wanted, done with them, those guns must be sold to the highest bidder and put back into circulation. the nra says the state must not destroy the weapons that people handed over specifically so the weapons could be destroyed. instead, the nra says the state has to sell them, keep them in circulation, and thereby become a gun dealer itself. when your response to the political cliche of low-hanging fruit is something so cartoon h cartoonishly insensitive, so cartoonishly villainous, you then bring upon us a second political cliche. you have jumped the shark. blocking voluntary efforts by people to get rid of their own guns because they want to voluntarily? that is an exercise in shark jumping. this is the sort of t
for reducing crime. >> the nra is clearly, dramatically out of step. >> lapierre dismissed background checks. >> background checks will never be universal. >> you will never get criminals to go through universal background checks. >> because criminals will never submit to them. >> they will not go to purchase the guns because there will be a background check. >> you missed the point completely. and i think it is basic. >> senator, i think you -- >> let there be order. >> i think you're missing it. >> let there be more. >> if chairman patrick leahy pressed lapierre. >> if you're a dealer, that is already the law. >> please, mr. lapierre, i'm not trying to play games here, but if you could just answer the question. >> rights demand responsibility. law abiding gun owners will not accept blame. >> americans are looking to us for solutions and for action. >> this time must be different. >> the senate judiciary committee today held the first senate hearing on gun and ammunition control, in the aftermath of the massacre of 20 first graders and six women educators at sandy hook elementary school. ba
do want is what the majority of nra members and other americans want: responsible changes in our laws to require responsible gun ownership and reduce gun violence." taking the argument beyond gun owners versus non-gun owner, taking the argument beyond absolutist gun anarchy versus a complete gun ban, this turn away from that kind of binary nonsense is the kind of turn in the conversation that typically signifies that there might be movement ahead, that people are getting real about maybe actually getting something done. at the same time on the same day, on the same anniversary, another overture today from roxanna green. the mother of 9-year-old christina taylor green who was killed in the tucson shooting two years ago. she appears in an ad that appeared in seven cities today including washington, d.c. and tucson. this ad is paid for by the mayors against illegal guns action fund. but the thing i find striking about it is that it is not just an issue ad to try to get people riled up or even to get people thinking about this as an issue area, as a subject, this is a campaign ad. >> 20 h
association as well as other gun owner and sporting groups. the nra released a statement, we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and attached to the second amendment. they said that it's unfortunate that the administration continues to push on failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems. biden says his task force on gun violence will send it is recommendations to president obama by next tuesday. while the vice president says he hasn't come to any specific conclusions yet, he sees an emerging consensus on certain ideas. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks, not just closed to gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> assault weapons are another possible target for new gun restrictions. cnn crime and justice correspondent joe johns visited a gun store today and will join us in a little bit to discover what turns an ordinary gun into an assault weapon and the changes that may be coming. >>> an unlikely idea is gai
meeting tomorrow at the white house. the nra association ceo wayne lapierre, is sending the director, the lobbyist for nra's wing to represent the lobbying group in a meeting with the vice president. the president also in attendance, and there will be representatives from walmart, which first declined to attend the meeting due to what they absurdly called a "scheduling conflict." they released a letter, saying knowing our leaders couldn't be there, we shared our perspective. we under estimated the expectation to attend the meeting on thursday in person, so we are sending an appropriate representative to participate. we take this issue very seriously and are committed to staying engaged in this discussion, as the administration and congress work toward a consensus on the right path forward. joining me now is the democratic senator from connecticut, richard blumenthal, who will soon take action on a bill. tell us first of all about the bill you intend to introduce. >> the bill i intend to introduce really has to be seen as part of a comprehensive set of measures that i'm going to be su
and galvanizing support to overcome the nra and other entrenched interests, which no doubt, no question will fight them, make no mistake, there will be a fight. but as you said, the centerpiece really is a comprehensive program that has to include the background checks. i propose background checks on ammunition purchases as well as extended background checks on firearms purchases so as to cover that 40% of private sales and gun show sales that are not now covered and a comprehensive program of preventing gun violence has support from the majority of americans. we need to make that support focused on washington, d.c. so our congressional representativ representatives, whether in the senate or the house, cannot escape the brunt of that opinion. >> senator murphy, let me turn to you for a moment. you represented newtown as newtown's congressman. now as senator you represent the entire state of connecticut as their senator. connecticut is a small state, but it is a diverse state. it is both diverse in terms of urban and rural areas. it's diverse in terms of its population. and in terms of its politica
what the nra has been doing and i wish they had listen to the majority of their members that are saying we should have universal background checks. an awful lot of them are saying i don't need a large magazine. that's not what i hunt for. i have a gun home to protect my family. we're not taking any of that away. but there's still -- if you read the blogs and everything, i mean, what's being put out there is so far from the truth. but when you think about it, you know, what we're trying to do is holistically, we're trying to look at the guns that cause the most damage, the large magazines which obviously once you go over that 15, 20, 30, 40, up to 100, they say, well, that's taking away our right, but why did we ban machine guns? that's legal by the supreme court. i still go back to the supreme court which they seem to be ignoring right now, the nr a. they don't even want to listen to their own people in the supreme court saying that the municipalities and the sats have the right to make laws to protect their citizens. >> let's go to ron reagan on these thoughts. i want you to watch some
. >> and laerry, after all of the activity today, representatives of the nra and walmart, which is one of the nation's leading retailers of guns are going to meet with vice president biden and officials over at the white house, as well. the vice president's office just releasing a statement within the past couple of minutes saying he's going to have three separate meetings tomorrow, including one in the evening tomorrow with representatives of the entertainment industry. larry. >> all right, eamon javers, thanks very, very much. and now to talk about this, let's bring in our panel, we have karen finney, and former dnc communications director, we have guy benson, political editor for townhall.com and mark simone wor radio talk show host. good evening, everybody. >> hey, larry. >> guy benson, let me start with you. if you're talking about restricting automatic guns. if you're talking about restricting these 100-bullet magazine cartridges and so forth, you can't do that by executive. >> well, i totally agree with that. and you are sometimes starting to hear automatic weapons con flated wi
of congress, where the nra has been one of the most powerful forces for years and years and years. the really interesting question is this. this horrible shooting today following on those other horrible shootings, of course we've had these before, but since newtown, perhaps things have tipped. now the media is paying attention. every time it's a new bit of information about why we need some sanity on guns and when that happens, even politicians who are afraid of the nra might become afraid of looking like they're just on the wrong side of history and the facts. >> hogan, let me ask you about this, because, you know, the nra has said let's put armed guards in schools. i've been skeptical of that just because all of a sudden you think you're going to find this whole host of people in the united states that know how to handle all these situations and know how to handle guns and know how to shoot and you're just going to put them in schools tomorrow and it's going to work. but i'm curious because the lone star college system, of course, where the shooting was today at the community college, emplo
actually thought about joining the nra but never got around to it. when it comes to wayne la peaier, the two have never met but he hopes that they can have a constructive conversation about how to tackle gun violence. two staunch supporters of the second amendment, two very different views on guns. >> they are god given freedoms. they belong to us in the united states of america as our birth right. no government gave them to us and no government can ever take them away. >> i defended the second amendment flying in combat over iraq in kuwait, you know, defending our country. i own a gun. this really isn't about the second amendment. >> reporter: these will be the star witnesses at congresses' first hearing since the shooting in newtown. mark kelly, the husband of gabby giffords who was shot in the head, six people died in the attack. the couple are gun owners themselves and used to practice at an nra range. now they are taking on the powerful gun lobby. kelly tells cnn they support extensive gun control, including restricting high-capacity weapons, like the one used by giffords' shoo
. they are going after the easy target. dennis: the easy target versus the hard target did the nra turned a bunch of negative criticism onto hollywood and the game industry. >> yes, they did. this is a global business. they play the same games in europe and japan. dennis: it is a matter of guns rather than games. what else might the industry come up with here. >> i think there has to be a message delivered about the content. there is a rating system. it has to be enforced. parents have to be aware of what their kids are playing. the real issue is not that games. little boys have always played with toy soldiers. that is not the issue. i rub her that people were worried that my james bond kick would turn violent. back to you, dagen and connell. dagen: thank you, dennis. he deserves credit for that. connell: we will have more on that videogame story throughout the day. we will also have more on this flu story. the cbc is about to deliver an update. as soon as it does, we will have it for you. dagen: more americans own their homes outright. no note that they have to pay off monthly to the bank. they
of testimony. >> you know i hope what happens, had he testifies in the committee tomorrow is that the nra presses him on the second amendment. does that mean that citizens should be able to have massive fire power to fight a future government. they would lose credibility with their own base. there is a real dangerous current fed on the internet and youtube, of people talking very threatening violent language about what would happen if congress were to impose an assault-weapons ban, and other gun control measures like that father outline, which was quite well said. and i think mr. lapierre needs to address that, including even the conspiracy theories that are circulating among gun rights activists, who claim that the
will never submit to them. the nra is calling on members to show their support in a big way. the political arm just sent a mass e-mail calling for all members to show up tomorrow and, quote, pack the hearing room. all this with emotional hearings going on in connecticut. that's where the governor's bipartisan task force on gun violence prevention is going on in hartford. connecticut already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. some of the sandy hook parents argue to make them even stricter. they faced opposition from vocal opponents in the crowd. >> reporter: metal detectors, heavy security and a sign on the door reading, no guns allowed. that's what greeted hundreds attending this connecticut hearing on gun loss. >> try to put yourself in the place i'm in. not a good feeling to look at your child in a casket or with your child with a bullet wound to the forehead. >> reporter: neil heslin's son jesse was killed in newtown, but that didn't seem to matter to the hecklers. >> if there's one person in this room that can give me a reason or challenge this question, why anybody in t
are opposed by the n.r.a. so this is a big issue for mayor bloomberg. but i think we need to not only point out the hypocrisy but also the after-effect. the fact that we were trailed by nypd officers who claim they had security jurisdiction which is a phrase that doesn't exist, by the way, to question me and show i.d. as though i was some teenager on a friday night trying to buy liquor. >>steve: you're right about the hypocrisy. look at "the journal news," the newspaper in suburban new york which published those names of people who legally had guns, and then what did they have to do? they had to hire armed guards to protect them in the fallout. >> absolutely. that's the point. listen, americans know best how to protect their family. and you have, especially in urban cities, you have thugs, wanna-be thugs looking to vandalize homes. it's not like if congress issues a directive, if you're going to rob a home, do it by yourself. don't have someone with you, don't have an assistant. obviously criminals aren't going to follow that. therefore, why should mayor bloomberg and other politicians who
gun seller and the nra. >>> plus, from my visit to egypt, the writing on the wall, the graphite in tahrir square tells the story of a revolution that many fear is going wrong. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we begin right here in washington with important news. the vice president joe biden met with victims of gun violence and gun safety advocates. they spent several hours over at the white house trying to prepare the task force for recommendations to the president. they are deeply worried public sentiment for changing the nation's gun laws is fading too quickly despite the connecticut school massacre and other mass shootings over the past year or two. the vice president revealed his task force on curbing gun violence. is considering measures the president can take without having to wait for any congressional action. let's bring in our cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's working the story for us. what are you hearing? >> reporter: wolf, i'm told that there is very much a sense in this meeting between vice president joe biden and advocates of gun
of disturbing that people are calling for my death because i'm a member of the n.r.a. they're worried about me. i go to class and i go to the range on occasion. >>steve: thank you for your service and joining us today. thank you, sir. >> thank you. stroeup he left a -- >>steve: he left a phone in a cab and discovered somebody was using it to somebody was using it to get and date.s to stay in motio. staying active can actually ease arthritis sympto. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benets with theisks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or st
